SITUATION 2 Katie loves clothes. She wishes she could have all the designer clothes she wants. Unfortunately, she can’t; she has two brothers and three sisters, and her parents cannot afford to buy all their children designer clothes. Katie has a few friends that have some designer jeans. Her friends let her borrow the jeans, even though this is against her parents’ wishes. Her parents felt that Katie should not borrow them in case something were to happen to them. In that case, they would need to purchase an outfit to replace the damaged one. One day on the way home from school, Katie tripped and fell on her knees. She tore holes in both knees of the designer jeans she had borrowed from her friend, Julie. Katie was crying, not only because she had injured her knees, but because the new jeans were ruined and they weren’t even hers. What is Katie going to do? Should she tell her parents? Should she tell Julie? What decisions should Katie have made prior to borrowing the jeans? Does Katie have an obligation to Julie?
